I'm building a system for tranfering my 8mm video tapes to dvd , Here's my parts ASUS A8N-SLI Premium motherboard, amd Athlon 64 4200 dual core / 939 socket, cosiar ddr 3200-400mhz / 2 gig , Maxtor sata 7200/ 300gig, EVGA GEforce 6800 g.s 256mb pci express O.S win 64 bit xp pro ( not installed) win vista to follow when avaliable. I have only fired up the system to the orignal bios and followed the instructions in the book the M.B came with. I have not hooked the dvd burner as instructed to do at the asus web site. I keep reading articles about how I need to update this board's bios for 64 bit O.S , and I have tried but I am still totaly in the dark about what it is that I'm doing exactly, they talk about bios flash tool and bios 1302 but I put them on a floppy and then I'm lost with no O.S, I can't seem to get the right command to type to get the floppy to do anything, not really sure how to get to the a prompt , then the flash tool or what I'm lost . Can someone explain this in detail so Mr. bit off more than he can chew. Please...

I have Gigabyte boards myself, no personal experience with Asus. Here is a link to a forum dedicated to AMD Asus boards: http://forums.pcper....display.php?f=8 Check out the sticky post at the top. There you will find all kinds of info, maybe even the answer to your problem.

They have a Gigabyte forum too and I have found solutions there.
